Community Involvement

Dr. Henley settled into Rohnert Park back in 1977 and within a short time he began volunteering his time and resources to the community he called home. Over the years his participation with community affairs has grown to include much of Sonoma County as well as his continuing work within Rohnert Park.

In 2011 Dr. Henley was honored by SCAYD (Sonoma County Adult Youth Development) when they presented him with a Lifetime Achievement Award. SCAYD is a service-provider organization that Dr. Henley helped found and then continued his support serving as Board president for many years.

"I appreciate the opportunities I have had to work with many of the community leaders and volunteers that make the North Bay a special place to live and to work."
